West volleyball: remember us?

CEDAR RAPIDS– “It’s been a topsy-turvy journey, but I’m pretty proud of them,” West High coach Kathy Bresnahan said last Wednesday (Nov. 2) night after her Women of Troy defeated Cedar Rapids Washington 3-0 in a Class 4A Regional final.
The win punched the ladies’ tickets to the State Volleyball Tournament, which begins today (Wednesday) at noon in the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena as West takes on Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln.

Trojans’ final game goes to the ‘dogs

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– With apologies to Frank Sinatra, that’s life. You’re riding high on Monday only to be shot down on Friday.
The West High Trojan football season came to a crashing end Friday night, Nov. 4, at the hands of the Bettendorf Bulldogs in a Class 4A quarterfinal. A win would have sent Coach Brian Sauser’s crew to the UNI-Dome.

Medals for their mettle

NORTH LIBERTY– Volunteer firefighters with the North Liberty Fire Department combined training with fun on Sunday, Oct. 23, during the department’s second annual Medal Day. Ten firefighters split into two teams to compete in timed events simulating common but critical fire ground skills.
North Liberty’s bravest put on Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), took on an engine company drill, a truck company drill and practiced setting up the department’s 75-foot aerial ladder. Teams that performed the tasks in the least amount of time received medals and bragging rights.

Food For Thought

Brisk Friday nights and high school football games take me right back to the early ‘50s when I often wore Mother’s sealskin coat to watch the Knoxville Panthers play.

Walkin'

Pearl is one miserable critter, and Buzz has become a pill-popping junkie lately.
On a walk in the woods recently, Pearl managed to stab herself while dashing around in the timber like the labradoodle she is. During our walks, especially the ones in the woods, her brain gets locked onto two words, “Oh boy!”
Something died over here, “Oh, boy!”
Something peed over there, “Oh, boy!”
Something moved, “Oh, boy!
